SUCCESSION OF JODO SHINSHU TRADITION
SHAKU SENNYO, OHTANI KOJUN,
M
ONSHU, JODO SHINSHU HONGWANJI-HA

 

Today, according to my predecessor, Sokunyo Monshu's wishes, I was inaugurated into the posts of Hongwanji jushoku, resident priest and Monshu of the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha institution. On this occasion, I would like to extend my deep gratitude to him for his many years of nurturing and guidance. At the same time, I acknowledge the monumental responsibility of succeeding the Jodo Shinshu tradition and am resolute in carrying out my duties to the best of my ability.

The teaching on how we are saved by Amida Tathagata's Primal Vow was set forth by Sakyamuni Buddha, and it was transmitted by the seven Pure Land masters to Shinran Shonin, who clarified it into the Dharma of Jodo Shinshu. That tradition has been passed down to us through the efforts of successive Monshu of Hongwanji, fellow Jodo Shinshu followers, and many people who have supported their work until today. In inheriting this illustrious tradition, I will exert every effort to convey the Dharma of Jodo Shinshu to the future.
